New Addition...

After dealing with 3 carseats crowded in the back of our small Saturn for the last 8 months we decided it was about time we got a minivan. Now I have never been one to care about cars really at all, if it is reliable I am happy, but I was SUPER excited to get a minivan. Now I know a lot of people aren't fans of the minivan and I am cool with that, but I think they are great family vehicles.
Today we brought home our new car. We ended up getting a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country. It has power everything, a leather interior (with heated seats!), and it is really nice. It runs great and I am really happy with our. I have to give a big Thanks to Dad Peterson for flying out from Las Vegas to help us pick out a car. We honestly had no idea what to look for in buying a good used car and he was a big help!
Bucket seats in the middle row were high on my priority list. They make moving around the vehicle so much easier.
The kids were so excited to play in the new van and they played in there for a good half hour while Jared and Dad shoveled a parking spot for the new van.
